These paintings are about colors we’ve all seen. Often we don’t register or remark on the beauty of colors but our eyes have taken them in. Color affects everything and is everywhere. Notice your mood change when after a period of gloomy and cloudy days, the sun comes out. The light brings color. I find that rural Minnesota winters are a great inspiration for thinking of, remembering, and depicting colors. That’s what these paintings are, memories of colors we’ve all seen.
